BnW Release and Our First Ever "All Customer Blog Hop"

Welcome to the
Belles ‘n Whistles “All Customer Blog Hop”   

Today we are celebrating the rebirth of the darling SweetArt girls designed by none other than Artist Elisabeth Bell. 
Belles ‘n Whistles now has a total of 17 SweetArt girls in their store, available RIGHT NOW!  They were just too beautiful to be left sitting in the archives.  Elisabeth Bells talent deserves better than storage, don’t you think?

We are so excited about this special release, because we have decided to have many of our Belles ‘n Whistles Customers joining us for this special occasion.    Along this hop you will find the new releases, mixed in with the wonderful works of our loyal customers.

The Hop Starts Here.  You will find the master list of participants below.   To keep things easy, please follow this master list and leave a comment on each blog. 

You are definitely going to want to do that anyway, because  YOU could win a stamp from Belles ‘n Whistles, just for leaving some love along the way. 

Blog Hop Participant Prizes… 

We will have a top 3...

With the number 1 spot being the "Grand Prize Winner"

Grand Prize Winner will receive the Entire Release!

2nd Place Winner will receive THREE Stamps of their choice.

3rd Place Winner will receive TWO Stamps of their choice.

These three awards will be based on participants of the blog hop, and will be voted on
by Summer, and the BnW DT.

There are even more ways to win!!!

If you are NOT a participant, but just hopping along with us,

we will have FIVE winners chosen by

just for leaving comments along the way.

Not only that, but we have a little extra added surprise for you…. 

Somewhere along the way, you are going to see 2 different new SweetArt Girls that are also part of this release.  They will be colored images, no card, just a Sweet piece of art with their official stamp name on them. 

It works like this….
If you spot one of those images, make sure you mention what you saw, and  there will be FOUR  winners from THOSE comments to win not one, but TWO brand new Digital Word Art, that just so happen to go perfectly with some of the Belles ‘n Whistles Stamps. 

What do you think of those?  Guess what?  You can find them in the Digital Stamp catagory over at the Belles 'n Whistles Shop.

When you have finished with the hop, please be sure to come back here and leave a comment telling us what you thought… 

Our blog hop will last for only 2 days, Closing at 11:59PM,  August 10th.    Winners will be chosen and posted right here on Friday, August 12th.

  1. Hi Lynda, I'm just back from hopping. Seems I'm one of the first and maybe I'm a little early because there were quite a few blogs that didn't have there post up yet. I will check back tomorrow to see those too. But the ones I have seen, OMG, such inspiration!! LOve the stamps and love the cards the ladies made. Hugs, Frea

  4. Oh my goodness, what a fabulous hop. I so enjoyed all the creations and inspiration. The new stamps are so cute and I loved the Country Ride and Breezy Going. Thanks for a chance to participate.

  5. Phew, my brain is on overload from seeing so many gorgeous creations and gaining tons of inspiration. These stamps are just adorable and I'm so happy to see the WordArt by Lynda being added to the store.

    My favorite things about the hop are: 1) getting to see design blogs I'd never seen before; 2)the variety of amazing design styles and coloring by the participants; and last but not least, 3)the beautiful SweetArt Girls and 2 new stamps by EB.

    I loved being a part of this hop and so appreciate the opportunity to participate. Thank you! "Hugs" Carol

  6. What a fabulous hop! I feel honored to be in a hop with all these artists - all of these projects are true works of art! I love Elisabeth's images and it is fun to see these "reborn"! Love the Breezy Going and Country Ride too! That Country Ride is at the top of my wish list :)

    Thanks so much for letting me participate! My coloring skills are definitely amateur compared to the other ladies and i use Prismacolor pencils. But I loved being in this hop - getting my feet wet so to speak :) Hugs!
